Evening, hope all is well.

I had the same questions. I have not tried yet, but figured I would share what I found since no one has replied yet. From what I found everyone said it was easy to use. I did not hear anything specificly negative. I have 2 I want to set up, just to lazy, you can search the forum and can find some threads that may help.

I have my lights and MP40s all controlled through mobius. Controlling them is fine, but the pumps have had issues with updating. I had to leave one unplugged to update the other and do it one at a time. It’s not super clear why that’s necessary, and they don’t really tell you up front unless you read knowledge base articles. So be advised about that issue. Other than that, seems to work fine for me.

Are they super quiet? I’d like to use it in a bedroom and need them quiet especially at night when everything seems loud. Thx

The MP40s? Yeah, they’re quiet sub-50%. I can only hear them when I put my ear to them. Above 50% they do start to ramp up audibly.

Only bad thing i have read........

Once you update older MP's to work with mobius(new firmware), downgrading back to premobius firmware will not work(Although ecotech says it should).
